It's a grand old flag, but then maybe not, no I'm not making a political statement but once again and imploring you to look at Old Glory. As I've said before, it may have served it's time and needs to be retired and replaced with a new one. If this is indeed the case the trash is not the proper disposal course to take, there is a ceremony in honorably disposing of your flag. a couple of times a year our American Legion has a flag disposal ceremony that I must admit, if observed, will touch your heart and stir your pride in this country. I suggest you contact your local Legion and see what's available. If you don't have a flag, get one and display it, let's show the world that despite the differences we may have we all stand strong under the Red, White, and Blue. Happy Independence Day!
